Watch the First Year video

The most challenging and rewarding years of your life...

As a Golden Ram, you are a part of a vibrant community where you’ll explore your passions and make lifelong friends.

There will always be someone new to meet inside the classroom, on the quad, and in over 300 clubs, but you’ll also quickly feel how close-knit the Ramily is.

You’ll experience a personalized learning environment with one-on-one advising and small class sizes taught by accomplished professors committed to your success.
